Chickerell school first stand-alone primary in Dorset to become an academy

CHICKERELL Primary School is the first stand-alone primary in Dorset to become an academy.

It has converted to primary academy status.

Academy schools operate independently from local authority control.

Priority to convert to an academy is given to schools deemed by watchdog Ofsted to be "outstanding" or "performing well".

The school was recently propelled into the top 200 primary schools in England, ranked by the percentage of pupils achieving Level 4 in both English and maths in Scholastic Assessment Tests (SATs). It recorded a 100 per cent success rate in English and 98 per cent in maths.

Headteacher Jody Harris has been at the school for two years.

Most primary schools on Portland have converted under the island academy scheme.

That's hardly proof, What were they arrested for stench ( 1 arrested in connection to the arson attacks and 6 arrested for harbouring a criminal) . Stupid no not stupid just naive. And your right this is completely irrelevant to this story but you comment because you are so hell bent on trying to offend people,its sad really. And yes i for one am ignoring you because trying to enlighten you to reality is like banging your head against a wall, all you get is a headache.

What exactly has this got to do with the academy at Chickerell? Seems to me all the kids now are 'guinea pigs' with the curriculum changing every five minutes, depending on what idiot is in the education minister's seat. Good on you Chickerell in getting local control over local kids.
